To sum up a previous thing.  Installed an Archer C5 as a secondary router. Turned off DHCP, assigned it a static IP, connected it through LAN and not WAN.  Wifi works great now after removing a bad Cat5e socket that was feeding into it. I have directly ran into a switch now.

 

When I first installed the router, the web interface would connect and go down immediately. Thats when I noticed all the dropped packets and latency through the wireless connection.  After replacing a bad Cat5e socket the wifi works perfect with no latency or packet loss.

 

However I cannot connect to the web interface at all with the router's IP address.  I checked the main Arris modem/router device and the C5 is being read as the correct IP address. Wifi still works off the device, any devices behind the router can access every available network resource and I can also reach any device connected through wifi going reverse.

 

Still cant access the web interface.

 

TP Link support is useless at this point.   Any ideas?

Did you set a static IP in the C5? Go to Advanced->Network->LAN and change the IP Address to 192.168.0.2 (something other than 0.1) I would also advise that you set an address reserve using the MAC of the C5 in the main router. This will allow you to access the web interface of the C5 as long as you have connectivity.

Static was set on the C5. Arris modem doesn't have address reservation. I assigned the static way beyond what DHCP on the modem would give out. I have connectivity but cannot access the web interface with the IP.

Curious on something that I frankly don't know the answer to off hand.

 

*edit*   Cannot access the interface either wireless or through ethernet.  Updated firmware, hardware version 2.0
